QCon London 2015–Takeaways from “The Bad Idea Terminator”

It’s very unchar­ac­ter­is­tic of me, but I went to a ses­sion on the prod­uct man­age­ment track at QCon Lon­don – Melis­sa Per­ris’ “The Bad Idea Ter­mi­na­tor”. Hav­ing gone in the room with the expec­ta­tion of com­ing out not much wis­er, I was pleas­ant­ly sur­prised to find myself in one of the best talks at the …

On day three of QCon Lon­don, we were treat­ed to some real­ly insight­ful sto­ries from the likes of Google, Atlas and Spo­ti­fy.

QCon London 2015–Takeaways from “Small is Beautiful”

From the first day of QCon Lon­don, I real­ly enjoyed Kevlin Henney’s Small is Beau­ti­ful talk. Titled after E.F.

QCon London 2015–Takeaways from “Code as Crime Scene”

The first day of this year’s QCon Lon­don is over, and it’s been a thor­ough­ly enjoy­able day of talks. Most of the  talks are on soft­er, more philo­soph­i­cal top­ics, which is a nice change of pace from last week’s Lamb­da­Days. One of my favourite talks from today was Adam Tornhill’s Code as Crime Scene and …
